SEC. 17-17-409. Powers and duties of counties, regional solid waste management authorities or municipalities regarding waste tire collection, processing and disposal.
Each county, regional solid waste management authority or municipality, as the case may be, shall, as part of its local nonhazardous solid waste management plan as required by law, plan and provide an adequate number of waste tire collection sites within its jurisdiction, for the deposit of waste tires from small quantity waste tire generators and shall ensure the delivery of these tires on an adequate frequency to an authorized waste tire processing/disposal facility operated by the county, regional solid waste authority or private entity. Counties may establish, own and/or operate a waste tire collection site or sites or may enter into leases or other contractual arrangements with other counties or private entities for the operation of waste tire collection sites for small quantity generators. Nothing in this section shall prevent a county or regional solid waste authority from providing a more expansive waste tire management service.
